Check out IoT at JavaOne!

"We are always creating new IoT applications and encouraging others to improve them. Lhings is the networking tool that let us make it very easy. This time we wanted to make something we use in our everyday lives which is traditionally non-technical, as is a table, to be connected to the Internet and then provide new services that could be useful in some applications" explains José Pereda, who is part of the Lhings team. Based in Spain, the team won a JavaOne trip during IoT Developer Challenge.  

"We wanted to show that IoT is useful in real scenarios and it's accessible to anyone. Likewise, we would like to encourage developers to reproduce and improve it!" further explains José. You will get a chance to meet them at JavaOne.  

In the Internet of Things session track at JavaOne, you will learn about Java Embedded and discover great applications. Register today with the Flash Sale code DFS4, you will save US $400   

José is also presenting four talks at JavaOne

  • JavaFX 3D: Advanced Application Development
  • How to Build the Game 2048 with JavaFX and Java 8: Lessons Learned
  • Debugging and Profiling Robots with James Gosling
  • Create the Game 2048 with Java 8 and JavaFX
